Ever since news of a Jumanji sequel first dropped we've been dying to see footage, and now we've finally got a little taste of the film thanks to its star, Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson, who constantly updates his fans on social media, recently posted a 30-second video of himself on the jungle set of Jumanji, telling his fans just how method he's been going for his role — including catching fish with three heads —right before the camera guy pans right and ruins the allusion. The whole thing is pretty hilarious, and you can check it out here:

Good one, camera guy!

And then, just when it looked like everything was running to schedule, Kevin Hart posted the following video indicating an issue on set concerning Jack Black:

But despite all the jokes, it looks like filming on the Jumanji sequel is well underway, with many of the main cast recently posting an image on social media of all four of them ready for action:

Following the images release, Karen Gillan's character, Ruby Roundhouse, was particularly criticized for her skimpy look. However, the actor was quick to tell fans via twitter that there was a reason her character was wearing child-sized clothing, and promised "the pay off is worth it." The tweet immediately set off theories that Ruby Roundhouse may be an Alan Parish-type character, who was sucked into the game as a child. Or even that the four main characters are actually in-game avatars of children playing the board game — or possibly even a video game — Jumanji in our universe.

In addition to starring Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse, Jumanji also stars Johnson as Dr. Smulder Bravestone, Kevin Hart as Moose Finbar, Jack Black as Professor Shelly Oberon and Nick Jonas as a yet-to-be-named character (Jonas actually replaced Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland).

So far plot details are being tightly guarded, though we do know Jumanji is planned to swing in theaters on July 28, 2017.

Are you going to roll the dice and watch the Jumanji sequel?
